KUDOS: LACA

Through a partnership with the Lakeshore Food Club and the Mason County District Library, with the funding of grants and donors, LACA aims to distribute 200 crEATivity kits each month to community members who would benefit from expressing themselves through art. Each art kit will include easy to understand instructions for a new project each month, all of the materials needed to complete the project, educational information about the background of the project, and a healthy snack.
We are in need of 4-5 volunteers to assist with the packaging of the art kits. This commitment should not take more than two hours. Please note that we will be gathering in the LACA performance hall and volunteers will be socially distanced and required to wear a face covering. To sign-up please visit https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10C0A4CACAA23A4F94-march.
If you are interested in assisting in the funding of this project please contact LACA Executive Director Andrew Skinner at 231-845-2787 or e-mail director@ludingtonartscenter.org.
